You may have a new baby, a new job, a family member who moved in with you, you just built a home that’s finally ready to move into, or some other major part of your life that has changed in recent weeks. Buyers have those needs, so rest assured that someone is most likely looking for a home just like yours.
Your Trusted Real Estate Agent Can HelpReal estate agents are working hard every single day under certain circumstances, using technology to help both buyers and sellers who need to move on with their plans. We’re using virtual tours to show homes on the market, staying connected with the buyers and sellers through video chat, and using resources to complete transactions electronically. We’re making sure the families we support remain safe and can keep their real estate needs on track, especially as life is changing so rapidly.
There Is Less Competition NowThe same survey indicates that 57% of NAR members said sellers are removing their homes from the market right now. If other sellers are removing their listings, your home has a better chance of rising to the top of a buyer’s list and being seen. Just remember, listings will pick up again soon, as 57% of the respondents note that sellers are only planning to delay the process by a couple of months. If you need to sell right now, don’t wait for the competition to get back into the market again.
This year, delayed listings from the typically busy spring season will push into the summer months, so more competition will be coming to the market as the pandemic passes. Getting ahead of that wave now might be your biggest chance.
Homes are still being bought and sold in the middle of this pandemic. If you need to sell your house and would like to know the current status in your local market, contact a local real estate agent to create a safe and easy plan that works for you and your whole family.
